GBA 4x4 to Iowa Hill
Some of the GBA 4x4 crew headed up to the Sierra’s between Placerville and Auburn. The reason was to scout some areas for a possible 4x4 run during Geo Woodstock 6, but we also collected a few cache finds along the way.
We did a run up to Slate Mountain on a road that was not difficult, but was narrow. How much pinstriping the truck got will have to wait until I wash the dust off (and the roads were very dusty). I thought the prettiest part was dropping down into the very narrow American River canyon and finding the suspension bridges.
Here’s a few caged geocachers returning from the lowest county high-point in California.
Bthomas and mjp303 make their escape. It’s a good thing the neighbors were cool, although the lady kept calling from the second floor window, “You don’t have to climb the fence!”
Must be a geocache nearby.
Geodanimal often tries unique approaches to a cache.
It takes some good sized bolts to anchor this suspension bridge.
These brilliant red flowers really stood out.
I’ve always wanted to attend a cool church. Now I know where it’s at.
At first I thought this was a John Kennedy (but there is no d). It’s interesting to imagine what brought a 23 year-old from Ireland to a gold camp in the middle of nowhere. What was his journey like to get here? What happened to him that he died so young?
